Bio

Known for mastering the art of heartfelt, vivid soundscapes with an electronic bent, Sydney-based producer Oliver Tank burst seemingly out of nowhere with his own brand of incredibly textural glitch pop with his debut EP Dreams in late 2011. He followed up with stunning sophomore EP, Slow Motion Music in late 2013, featuring collaborations with Ta-Ku​, Hayden Calnin​, as well as long-time friend and collaborator Fawn Myers. Followed by his album OT in 2017 Tank continued to develop his sound and hone his craft.

Now with 7 million cumulative streams under his belt. With rave reviews worldwide for his music, Tank’s rise was kicked off by winning FBi​'s Northern Lights competition, inclusion in triple j​'s “​Next Crop​” and nomination for FBi SMAC Award in the “​Next Big Thing​” category. He has also supported music luminaries Active Child, Youth Lagoon, Bonobo​, Lana Del Rey​, James Blake and Lorde as well as headline national tours and sets at ​The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City ​and Falls Festival​.

Oliver continued to make music behind the scenes in the last few years with writing credits on the recent JOY. single ‘Change’ and various other soundtrack and production work.

2019 see’s Tank returning to the scene with his upcoming release ‘​The Ocean Fades into The Sky​’. The body of work is a collection of music from over the last few years as Tank worked away privately on developing a sound that would help define him

"Day Trip" should soundtrack every space on heaven and earth that angels pass thru. If we're lucky we will bear witness.

Soft and subtle, exactly how we love a lil bit of new OT.
